Re: BMW G650GS is this a good starter bike for touring

I have loads of bikes, my gs650 sertao is often the one I want to jump on, it's a great all round bike, more than capable of touring.

Re: Navigating

I use Google maps on my phone, it got me to vienna and back with ease, try to find how to download the directions to avoid data charging if your contract is expensive.

Re: KTM 690 Engine Problems, anyone fancy a guess?

I just don't see why a bike with 1000 miles had to have a new piston, it smacks of a thrashed bike, then badly repaired.....I would at the very least reject the whole motor, god knows what it's suffered..

Re: KTM 690 Engine Problems, anyone fancy a guess?

Sounds like it's been thrashed from new, not looked after on oil level and cooked...
I would move on, get another bike.

Carbs, frame bolts n nuts etc.

I was reading on another forum where the guy fills his handle bars with a silicone sealant helps add weight and suppose adds some vibration absorption properties
Better still...silicon Sealand mixed with lead shot..works a treat.

Re: NC500

Pic works..
Enjoy your trip, and good luck with the weather.
It's a nice little tour, West side by far the more scenic.
